Describe your sound in 3 words
Calming, thoughtful, chilled
Tell us a few things about your new EP “Darling Ocean”. What is the story behind it?
we actually started Little Drum around 6/7 years ago, wrote lots of tunes, then Donny moved to the States so it got left fora fair while. Last year on Donny’s return we listened through everything, loved it so decided to get it going. This E.P is the first of 3 planned. This is EP is leaning more towards the folk side of our sound, we made the decision to make this EP very chilled and gentle and we wanted to try and portray the feeling of life passing by, in a good way.
Which song of the EP reflects you the most?
I think all the songs reflect something about us. The lyrics are all from a personal place. Darling Ocean i guess because its about taking chances and just doing it.
Favourite album of the past year?
On a folk tip, really liked Taylor Swifts- Folklore, the best thing she’s done.
What would you change in the music industry?
we’re all songwriter’s too so I’d change how writers get paid to bring it back inline with the labels etc. Streaming has generally been good for the industry but for songwriters its had the opposite effect.
Which book should we read while listening to your music?
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson
What is the one habit/thing you cannot live without?
for me Tea, I’m sure Pauline would say Coffee and Donny his motorbike
Follow Little Drum
